News and Announcements

For many parents, the subject of math arouses feelings of anxiety — perhaps conjuring up memories of timed tests, difficult concepts, or embarrassing mistakes made in class. If you think of math as something that other people are good at or that has no practical use, your attitude may undermine your ability to coach your child. Take the fear and frustration out of math homework by pointing out how numbers are used in your home on a daily basis.

Covering your bases

Grade school kids are just learning how to interact with their classmates and make friends. But those who have trouble speaking and other issues may need your help to learn how to communicate their thoughts and feelings.

1. Talk regularly with your child.

Kids who have trouble communicating may be reluctant to talk at all. Your job is to encourage your child to initiate or engage in conversation as much as possible so she begins to feel more comfortable sharing her thoughts.

Tips for Asking Questions

How and when parents ask questions may make a big difference. Avoid asking all of the suggested questions [listed further in this article] on the same day. Try starting with one or two, and after a while, focus on the ones that elicit the most meaningful responses. Talk to your child during a time when you have the ability to focus so that your child feels he or she has your full attention.
